Bonjour to the World
THE INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE AT LEMANIA
We have installed our International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) in the heart of Lausanne. We will welcome you in an urban and cultural setting. You will benefit from a warm and stimulating environment. Whether you come from Switzerland or from all over the world, you will be able to open the doors of all the universities in the world.
Our IB Diploma Programme offers an academically challenging and balanced programme certified by the International baccalaureate (IB).
In addition to the IB Diploma Programme Lemania offers also the Preparatory class (grade 10) which is a one-year programme that prepares for entry into the IB Diploma Programme. The school provides courses such as mathematics, English, French, Sport, Economics, Business Management, Science, CAS (Creativity-Action-Service) and TOK (Theory of Knowledge) having the specific focus to help ensure success within the IBDP.
THE INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE IN THE WORLD
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is a 2 year pre-university curriculum (grades 11/12), primarily aimed at students age around 16 to 19. Created at Lemania in 2013, the IBDP is recognised worldwide and students who obtain the qualification can enrol at the university of their choice.
In 2013, more than 100,000 students holding the IB qualification went on to higher education courses, and this number is rising each year. In the last decade, IB students have applied to more than 5,000 higher education institutions in over 100 countries.

Your profile is key for your application
Here at Lemania College, our admission procedure looks at potential students’ whole personality, rather than focusing purely on applicants’ academic record. This gives us a better picture of each student’s specific needs, to make sure they succeed and fulfil their ambitions once they join the school.
We only make final admission decisions once students have submitted a complete application pack. If you are still missing some documents, you will need to tell us when they will be available.
Our admin team is here to help you complete the admission process and, if necessary, obtain your student visa.
The school’s Admissions Committee accepts all suitably qualified applicants, without discrimination on racial, ethnic or religious grounds.

LONG-TERM STUDENT BENEFIT
Our ambition is not only to ensure the student’s success in the exam, but also to provide him/her with the skills and work methods that will help him/her throughout his/her studies.
QUALITY OF TEACHING
For many years, Lemania School has been able to rely on a dedicated teaching team that is strongly involved in the success of their students.
We are committed to maintaining a constructive dialogue with parents and students. This is how our approach becomes proactive.
We set up clear rules and a continuous pedagogical follow-up thanks to online information in real time. We want all the steps proposed to the students to be easily identifiable and understandable.
Our goal is to ensure that the time spent at school is profitable. This is why we consider after-school care particularly important: supervised studies and individualized coaching are part of our school’s offer.
